HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Loren Roberts shot an 8-under-par 62 in the third round of the U.S. Senior Open on Saturday, breaking the record for the lowest 18-hole score in a USGA championship.
Roberts, 51, had eight birdies and no bogeys on the narrow Prairie Dunes layout, which is playing at 6,646 yards and features rough that in some places is 5 inches high. His 62 breaks the record by one stroke, which had been shared by seven players, including Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller and Vijay Singh.
The course had been softened by early morning rains and the normally brisk winds were fairly calm.
A great round by Loren no doubt. I don’t really follow the Seniors tour.
AP has goofed again. Roberts broke the record a Professional in a USGA event. Christina Kim also shot a 62. It took place at the 2001 USGA Girls.
I called AP in New York, they will be doing a correction.
